But much more important, the Stack instruction has only an effect on the commands in your startup-sequence and will not prevent stack overflows after booting has finished. The default stack of 4000 is much too low for programs, tools and libraries. Please, insert a line with MinStack 10000 after SetPatch.
OK I have changed this, removed the stack-lines and put "MinStack 10000" right after Setpatch.

Checked with Scout, Sysinfo and Showconfig.
FastMem starts at $78000000 and hasn't got any in-name/node. Scout says <none> in Memory/in-name column and Sysinfo displays plain empty. ShowConfig does display "FAST" so it's recognised. FastMem has priority of 40.

ChipMem is flagged as "chip memory" by both Scout/SysInfo and has priority of -10.

Tried this, no help...

And, what happens with the original icon.library 45.1 ?
What are your PicassoVS settings ?
IconsToFastMem seems to do nothing for me, memory runs out even if it is ran.
Original 45.1 icon.library works like it should - fastram is used. Although it's slower than 46.4.228
I attached my P96-variable settings as file.
